Each summer we are revved up to offer Camp FUEL – a camp for adolescents with disabilities and special needs who are ages 11 – 17 years old. As a participant, your child will benefit from Fun and Unique Experiential Learning activities at Camp FUEL. From skill building and special guests, to field trips and peer mentoring, we’ll be sure to get your child revved up and excited about engaging in camp!
Camp FUEL 2017 will take place from June 12 – July 20, 2017, this year. Early-Bird Registration begins January 16, 2017, and will continue through February 28, 2017. Camp FUEL will fill quickly; be sure to watch for registration forms here on January 16 and sign up early to save $100 per session.
